Take a break and discover what really happens when someone ships you glitter

“It’s a bit anticlimactic”.

WHEN MATHEW CARPENTER devised the idea of setting up a website to ship glitter to people, he became an internet sensation.

The idea of sending glitter in an envelope to someone you don’t like struck a chord with the vengeful-minded.

However, while you may be picturing this when you part with your money:


The reality is a little different.

Zaq Wood was sent some glitter in the post, he’s not sure by who, but knew immediately something was up.

“Most of the glitter was still in the envelope. I open letters by the flap, I felt something crunchy so I was a bit more cautious.

“The flap didn’t open easy so I peeked into the half open part and saw the glitter.”


So what happened?

“It didn’t go everywhere. A bit anticlimactic really.”
